Ryan Gosling All Beat Up for 'Only God Forgives'
That's what Gosling gets for being such a impossible-to-match standard of effortless cool, universally-desired good looks, and meme-based sensitivity. The asshole.
Actually, that's what he gets for doing another film with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, who seriously loves a Gosling face covered in blood.
The duo are in Bangkok shooting Only God Forgives, a thriller in which Gosling stars as a former kickboxer and gangster living in Thailand and out for vengeance after his brother's murder at the hands of police.
Interestingly, as noted by ThePlaylist, the man beside Gosling is not Refn but Enter the Void director Gaspar Noé. Refn has previously stated that he turned to Noé's expert head smushing advice on shooting Drive's head-smush scene, but it's unclear why Noé is wandering around set of Only God Forgives with a dainty paper cup. It may hint at truth to the rumors of Gosling being up for a role in Noé's Scientology-inspired suicide film, The Golden Suicides. Or, it could be just that there's more head smushes to be advised upon. We'll have to wait and see. There's just no telling where Gosling will next bloodily make girlfriends wish we were him.
